The Look Ahead: Beginning Belly Dancing, The Usual Happy Hour, White Lies, and a Ray Charles Tribute

On Friday’s Look Ahead, I predicted this past weekend would be a leisure sucking vampire. I was right. It was fun. I’d do it again. What else? A tornado killed 89 people and wreaked horrible destruction in Joplin, Missouri, the Mississippi continues it’s flooding, President Obama’s armored car got stuck on ramp in Ireland, and stocks are down. How’s about another look into the future?

We’ve been featuring a lot of music on these Look Aheads. Maybe that’s because we enjoy music so damn much. We also enjoy those things that accompany music. Case in point – dancing. I can’t claim any skills. That’s why I figured taking a class or two might be the thing to do. A male belly dancer, no. I’ll let the females have this one. For the men, they’ve got Flamenco. Check out the site.

Paul is the White Lies fan. I fear I’m just not as familiar. I’ll let him prep you for the show. “The best word I can think of to describe White Lies is ‘morose.’ Depressing lyrics complement full-bodied synthesized rock as the band constantly question of the meaning of ‘all this’ – you know, love, death the purpose of life. As much as White Lies sound like the gloomy bands of the 80s, they’re a different breed in this different time. That’s why I’m looking forward to this concert. I want to experience the band in the close confines of Fitzgerald’s, but, if not more so, the fans the band attracts.”
